Checked in for Tigers Opening Day and stayed a few extra nights as a quick getaway. Room was dirty, especially the bathroom. We asked for cups since there weren’t any and they told us they don’t have cups. You’re a hotel, with 2 restaurants but you don’t have cups?? Hot water went out yesterday morning and they said it was because a contractor hit… Read more
Checked in for Tigers Opening Day and stayed a few extra nights as a quick getaway. Room was dirty, especially the bathroom. We asked for cups since there weren’t any and they told us they don’t have cups. You’re a hotel, with 2 restaurants but you don’t have cups?? Hot water went out yesterday morning and they said it was because a contractor hit something and it would be fixed in about an hour. We had to cancel our dinner reservations since we weren’t able to get cleaned up in time, for a 7pm reservation. It’s now been 24 hours and they are still giving BS stories as to what’s happening. When we asked them to find us another room at another Marriott property, they said “we don’t do that”. Ha! Being a titanium member with Marriott gets you....cold water. Shady hotel with awful service. Read less

Good location near downtown river walk and connected to GM center. Compared to the hotels in this area, the price is good. Bed was comfy and good view. They brought coffee maker, microwave and extra blanket at our request. We appreciated that.

They brought coffee maker, microwave and extra blanket at our request. We appreciated that. Con; when we went in the room, there were some not so great smell ( not cleaning smell), but I assume that the smell was a result of cleaning??? I saw dust under TV, desk and window sill and started wondering if they really cleaned. Read less

Rooms were clean although not cleaned daily. The pool mitigation measures were also good. Most staff wore masks although housekeeping inconsistently and sometimes below nose. There was also inconsistent enforcement of wearing masks by guests in the lobby depending on which security or front desk staff was there.

I am going to start by saying me and my husband are Marriott members. He travels for business and myself personal & business. So when I arrived and check in to be told it's a pricey deposit at that time, as well as your room will be charge and during the time it's no house keeping during stay, you can pick up towel from front desk and the… Read more
I am going to start by saying me and my husband are Marriott members. He travels for business and myself personal & business. So when I arrived and check in to be told it's a pricey deposit at that time, as well as your room will be charge and during the time it's no house keeping during stay, you can pick up towel from front desk and the restaurants close at 9pm. 😳 Then go up to my room to find it across from the noisy ice machine that ran constantly. I change rooms, to find that room not so clean, especially the bathroom. I am truly disappointed, really disappointed, I've NEVER experienced this from a Marriott Hotel and I hope I NEVER experience it AGAIN! 😼 Unhappy Customer ☹ Read less

The hotel lobby and rooms look nice but there were four major issues we encountered. The first was there were ALOT of kids and teenagers roaming around the hotel lobby and floors. At one point the hotel attendent threatened to lock the doors. The second is the safe and drawer kept opening, the room we were in was on a slight tilt, very strange.… Read more
The hotel lobby and rooms look nice but there were four major issues we encountered. The first was there were ALOT of kids and teenagers roaming around the hotel lobby and floors. At one point the hotel attendent threatened to lock the doors. The second is the safe and drawer kept opening, the room we were in was on a slight tilt, very strange. They moved us to another room and like our first neighbors, they were playing loud music. We ignored it and went to dinner. The final issue was we wake up this morning to find what appears to be dried blood on the comforter and yellow stains on the mattress pad. We didn't notice them last night because we went right to sleep after dinner. DISGUSTING! I am so done. Not a good experience. Read less
